Update: This offer is no longer available. You can find an updated list of Verizon Wireless rebates and promotions here.

Verizon Wireless is thanking all of its customers by giving out 100 free Anytime minutes. You can get them by filling out the required information at this apparently legitimate website. The form asks for your name, phone number, zip code, and last four digits of your social security number.

But is the offer really legitimate? Let me know if any current customer gets anything other than an invalid response when entering information.

Banking Deal: Earn 1.75% APY on an FDIC-insured money market account at CIT Bank.

Update: Consumerist says that this offer is valid, but only for “merit” customers. Give it a try to see if you qualify. I don’t use all of my available minutes, so I think I’ll skip this one.

Continue reading for the full “terms” of the agreement.

Subject to Customer Agreement and Calling Plan. Customer must be current in billing. One-time “100 Bonus Minutes” credit can only be redeemed by calling 1-866-378-1537 or by logging onto www.verizonwireless.com/thankyou by November 30, 2006. Bonus minutes will not be automatically applied to the account without calling or logging on. Minutes will expire after 60 days. Unused minutes lost. Usage rounded up to next full minute. Cannot combine with other offers.

Just received 500 free min for free I’ve been avoiding their calls for a month but they were being persistence. I mean I’m currently using 900 min and I’ve never went over those min but they are giving away 500 min that I don’t even need. Funny thing is that the min expires next year which mean I only have a month to spend it all…at first I was being very skeptical and asked them if 500 mins changes my contract policy. They said they are giving 500 min because it’s a holiday season…there’s gotta be a catch I told them not to add those mins to my account because I’m okay with my 900 min but the bitc# was persistence so I add those useless 500 min to my account.

If you have to buy in to one or two of those offers. You might as well pay for your own minutes. I don’t believe it’s free. Like they say “Nothing is Free” unless I see it on my phone. Show me would ya.

I have had Verizon Service ever since I was 12yrs old. Ya’ll have always been reliable. I had to get a Verizon Pre-Paid phone, why do ya’ll only give the “free minute” offers to contract holders? We people with Pre-Paid needs offers like that as well.

Why keep an offer of FREE THANK YOU minuites on your website when it OBVIOUSLY is OUT-DATED? When going into your website to see how to get my Bonus Airtime of $15.00 I came across the complimentary min. and looked to find out the offer was good only in 2006. You need to UPDATE your web site and offer more to your customers who use verizon religiously. Thanks!

This offer is available by invitation only to customer residing in the NE. In order to be eligible you have to receive a mailer. It is NOT open to all their customers.

I called and it was legitimate. I have a family plan which is $80 (at the threshold mentioned by the other blogger), and was put on the primary tel# holder. Don’t really get it since its shared minutes anyways, but nevertheless supposedly on the acct.

Call the #, disregard the “up to 45 min wait”, press “1”. I went straight to a rep. good luck, gman

As it turns out, to qualify, you must be on a plan paying $79.99 or more for the past 3 monthd.
